Zendaya has the perfect hack for dressing down a businesslike ensemble — and it’s all in the shoes.
While out and about in New York today with “Euphoria” co-star Jacob Elordi, Zendaya sported a camel coat over a blue button-down blouse and dark pinstriped pants. The look was office-appropriate, even for a more formal work environment, with neutral colors giving it a more subdued feel.
But on her feet, the Disney Channel alum wore a pair of checkerboard Vans Old Skool sneakers, adding the perfect punk rock twist to the otherwise business-chic outfit. A staple of the ’90s skateboarding scene, the Old Skool is favored by stars like Gwen Stefani and Hailey Baldwin; it features a sturdy suede and canvas upper with a reinforced toe cap, padded collar and Vans’ signature waffle outsole. The shoes are in stock on Vans.com for just $60.
Meanwhile, Elordi went incognito in a faded baseball cap, hoodie, slim-cut pants and dark shades. Like Zendaya, the actor reached for a pair of kicks, choosing Adidas Rivalry sneakers. The all-white lifestyle shoes are marked down on Adidas.com to just $33 (they originally retailed for $65).
Zendaya has become known for her fashion over the years, particularly for awards shows and other red carpets. She puts together her best-dressed list making ensembles with the help of stylist Law Roach, who also works with Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande and Kerry Washington.
